7:03am
first disturbances on tuesday at the u.s. embassy in cairo, egypt. holly williams is in cairo. holly, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. the muslim brotherhood, which is a powerful islamist group here in egypt, has called for more demonstrations later on today. we're already seeing crowds of young men out on the street, clashing with the police. i can smell the tear gas from seven stories up. we've been watching this happen now for more than 48 hours. the egyptian police are using tear gas to try to disperse the protesters. clouds of smoke sting the face and push the crowds back, though they seem to be determined to stay on the street. for the last two days, groups of young men armed with stones have clashed with security forces, fighting for control of a road that leads to the u.s. embassy. the demonstrations today promise to be more organized and much bigger. and police know it.
7:04am
they've erected a ten-foot high concrete barrier, blocking the way to the embassy. egyptian authorities have promised to protect diplomatic embassies in the country. support for muslims, many who are still furious over the film that sparked these protests. the egyptian president, mohammed morsi appeared on television saying it's muslims duty to protect the embassies, knows that these protests are damaging for egypt but the president draws his support for islamic groups and he can't afford to crack down on these demonstrations too hard. norah? >> holly williams, thank you. let's now go to charlie dagata in benghazi. charlie, what's he saying? >> reporter: good morning to
7:05am
you, nor aah. we just returned from the u.s. consulate where we did meet with the president. he confirmed that four arrests have been made and is also confident that there will be more. you're confident that the men behind this, the people behind this will be caught? >> yes. >> reporter: what makes you so confident? >> because everyone is determined to. >> reporter: everyone is determined to? >> determined to. >> reporter: have you identified the group responsible for this? >> too early. >> reporter: it's too early. have you made moves toward the suspects responsible? we understand there's a no fly zone in place at benghazi airport. can you tell us more about that? >> to prevent any attempts by the perpetrators to flee the country. >> reporter: now the u.s. state department has released the names of the four men killed in the attack at the consulate. in addition to the u.s. ambassador, christopher stevens and sean smith, an air force
7:06am
veteran, state department has also confirmed the deaths of tyrone woods, former navy s.e.a.l. who served multiple tours of duty in iraq and afghanistan and glen doherty, another former s.e.a.l. working with a private company to help protect the consulate in benghazi. >> secretary of state hillary clinton goes to andrews air force base today to receive the remains of ambassador stevens and three other americans. at the state department with new information on the u.s. role, margaret brennan. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. hillary clinton says she is the person who sent chris stevens to benghazi. she knew it was a risky assignment and she will be receiving his remains at andrews air force base around 2:00 pm this afternoon. it has been an intense week for the secretary. she was informed of the attack around 4:00 pm eastern time, spoke to president obama shortly thereafter. she has been at the white house in the oval office, situation
7:07am
room at least six times over the past three days and is in constant contact with the other national security council principles, speaks to general dempsey, and secretary panetta via secure video conference. there was a five-hour period of what had happened to the ambassador, whether he had gone into hiding or been kidnapped. the state department still isn't clear on the details. they don't know how his body ended up in a benghazi hospital or who took it there. this is a very moment-by-moment investigation. but also leads into question one of the success stories of the obama administration on the foreign policy front. libya was viewed as a test of the minimum military engagement, maxim packet. >> what are state department officials focused on today? >> reporter: today they're very much focused on the expected protests throughout the region but there's also a little bit of
7:08am
cleanup that's happening. the secretary has been in contact with officials in egypt. i want to play for you what president obama said to telemundo in an interview on tuesday because it's having some reverberations. listen in. >> would you consider the egyptian regime an ally to the united states? >> i don't think we would consider them an ally. but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that's trying to find their way. they were democratically elected. i think that we are going to have to see how they respond to this incident. >> so, president obama did speak with president morsi to urge him to gain control of the situation. the issue there that was controversial was that egypt was named nonnato ally in 1989. so there is some diplomatic work that is being done. also some issues with the u.s. embassy in cairo and them staying on message with the state department, messaging out of washington. back to you.
7:09am
>> margaret brennan, thank you, margaret. no norah? >> national security agency director is now with us, also an adviser to governor mitt romney's presidential campaign. general, good morning. >> good morning. >> thank you so much for joining us. you have been in the belly of the beast, so to say, in terms of the intelligence apparatus of this country. today is a crucial day. there are going to be protests across the middle east. what does this mean? >> first of all, what we're going to learn today is probably not a secret that we're going to have to steal somewhere. this will be in public view. since you already mentioned, this is friday. the mosques will be crowded. how many people demonstrate in how many cities, how close to american installations are they allowed to get, how violent are they? and finally, and perhaps most important, what do these governments, many of whom are understandably quite weak, what do these governments do to protect americans and american installations? we'll learn an awful lot about
7:10am
how much power, how many legs this movement has. >> let me ask you. there are a number of intelligence officials that are saying they do not believe that attack in benghazi, libya, was planned, that it was spontaneous. there are protests erupting across the middle east. is there a suggestion that al qaeda is taking advantage of some of these protests? and is that the concern to you, as officials who may be there on the ground? >> there are lots of things to be concerned about. one important threat is that al qaeda connection. i've seen the reports that we didn't have any evidence prior to the attack that planning was go i going on. but if you look at the nature of the attack, i mean how many people bring in direct fire weapons and rocket-propelled grenades to a demonstration, it appears to have been a complex attack, well organized. although we don't have evidence of the preplanning, the absence of evidence is not evidence of the absence. i think the best you could tell the president in this circumstance is we didn't detect the preplanning.
7:11am
but my sense is it appears to be preplanned. now the al qaeda connection. if you look at al qaeda right now, you've got al qaeda prime on the afghan/pakistan border, the franchises like al qaeda in yemen and islamic and then the al qaeda inspired. the group that carried this out is on the border between that second and third category is my sense, maybe not quite a franchise but consistently inspired by al qaeda. eastern libya is the home of the libya islamic fighting group. we captured more libyans in i q iraq, foreign fighters, than from any other arab country. this is roughly a hot bed of this kind of activity. >> charlie? >> charlie rose in new york. do you consider this -- good morning. >> good morning. >> do you consider this a consequence of a failed policy by the president? >> well, i wouldn't call it a failed policy at all. look, charlie, we shouldn't presume that we can control events in this part of the world. i would say, though, that the
7:12am
weakness of the libyan state, the disillusion, the fact that the country was awash with weapons, that parts of this country were very fu fundamentalist, very islamist, those were predictable. as we went in, like secretary powell's pottery barn analogy for iraq, if we break it, we own it. we need to be prepared for the kind of chaos that has followed. if there's any shortcoming it might be in our response to the situation that, frankly, we may have helped to create but would have been inevitable in any way, in any sense. >> should this be a moment of debate about administration policy or is it a time to unite behind the president and have a political debate at another time? >> well, no, no. look, a lot of tough questions out there need to be resolved. we're in a political season. i can understand that the conduct of foreign policy is a legitimate subject for political discussion. lord knows, last year in
7:13am
government, 2008 how the sitting president dealt with terrorism was not something that was off limits for the presidential campaign. >> thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you, charlie. the federal reserve is starting a new stimulus for the chairman ben bernanke. he said thursday he has grave concern over the nation's unemployment rate. the move sent the dow jones industrials up 206 points to its highest close since 2007. rebecca jarvis is here to tell us how this will effect everything from mortgage rates to gas prices. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. ultimately there could be a big impact on both those items you mentioned, mortgage rates as well as gasoline prices. what the federal reserve is doing here is unprecedented and it's also untested. it will be buying $85 billion every month of mortgage debt and treasuries. in addition it's going to be keeping interest rates at or near 0% through 2015.
7:14am
what does that mean for a consumer? from a consumer standpoint. first of all, if you can get it, loan rates are near record lows right now. you can get a mortgage in this country at or near record lows. on the flip side of things, if you're a savor in this country, you already felt it at your bank account, you're not being paid much to keep your money at the bank. that is by design. it can also lead to growth in prices in gasoline as well as grocery costs. >> the federal reserves action, there is this question. they tied it to change in the unemployment. in other words, this has no particular duration. we'll continue to do this until we get the unemployment more stable? >> exactly. that's why this is so untested. we've seen action like this previously out of the fed, but it had a duration, it had a term attached to it. now it's unlimited. and they're say iing unemployme is going to be at or near 8% for the rest of this year. it will be four more years until it goes below 6%, which is what
7:15am
we consider normal unemployment in this country. and there are some big concerns from the federal reserve, from ben bernanke, the chairman, that washington also has to do its part. this is not a silver bullet. washington has to address the fiscal cliff and make decisions about our future. and the concern out of washington, and some of the critics of this is that unfortunately by doing this, the federal reserve takes some of the pressure off washington, d.c. to make the steps that are necessary to put this economy on better footing. >> rebecca, thank you. norah? in a just released cbs news "new york times" poll, president obama leads mitt romney by eight points. but when you look at likely voters it's down three points 49% to 46% and only 36% of registered voters says the country is better off now than it was four years ago. john dickerson is here with us.
7:16am
likely voters, that tighter screen of people that will likely head to the polls. obama is up three points. are you surprised? >> a little bit. usually the likely voter screen helps the republican. and we're testing here whether the president got a bounce out of his convention, where the dust settles after these two conventions. and it looks like in this poll and some others, we've seen the president appears to have gotten a little bit of a bounce, appears to be in good shape and that likely voter number is a good one for him. >> of course, the presidency is not decided by a popular vote, the national vote. it is decided in the battleground states. there is new polling out by "the wall street journal," virginia, florida, and ohio. and obama is up in those polls as well. >> that's right. if you take our poll with likely voters and in those states it's among likely voters, the president is ahead outside the margin of error. in those states that we all come to know and pay much attention to, ohio, florida. that's a big deal. >> john, two questions. one, has foreign policy entered the presidential debate in a significant way? >> it has, but i don't think --
7:17am
unless this is a protracted nightmare in the middle east over the next couple of days, i think we go back to the economy. this election is still all about the economy. >> on the economy, there's a question of the fed having to do this is just one more example of the failed economic policies of the obama administration. >> that's right. the question is whether people really get an understanding of what quantitative means. when they see the stock market go up, they may get a sense that the economy is approving of this move. the question of inflation, you have to see if people really feel that. the verdict on quantitative easing may not come in until after the election is over or until it happens in a way that actually doesn't affect the way voters make their decision about the economy and then make their decision about the president. >> there's a lot going on, john, in the world, and certainly at home. we're at this mad dash now to the finish line. the november elections. what does romney need to do now
7:18am
to sort of change the dynamics, when we talked about that polling? >> he needs to do something fast. the polling is moving away from him. he needs to do something to suggest that his economic stewardship -- get it back to the economy where he's the most comfortable and show that he actually can do something to put this economy in a faster gear than it's in. >> all right, thank you. >> john dickerson, thank you very much again. it is now time to show you some of this morning's headlines. the chicago tribune reports striking public school teachers and the chicago school board talk nld early this morning and plan to talk again later today. both sides say there is some optimism that a deal is close, bringing students back to class by monday. the san antonio express news reports the alleged leader of the oldest and largest crime syndicate along the texas/mexico border may go on trial in houston. jorge castillo sanchez, known as the shadow, was captured by mexican marines. new york city has approved a

7:31am
france at a private chateau owned by the queen's nephew. they were resting for some time before their tour of southeast asia, thought they were in a very remote and private place. but a tabloid -- former tabloid editor here in the uk says apparently there's a road about half a mile from the chateau. a public road with a view of the pool and with a long lens camera you can get a picture of someone from that road and that may have been what happened here. nonetheless, st. james palace is furious. they released a very strong statement today saying that these photos are a grotesque and unjustifiable invasion of privacy reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the lifetime of principle cease diana of wales. >> kelly, i didn't quite hear what you just said. my assumption is that they're so
7:32am
angry they may pursue legal action. do they have a cause of action here? >> reporter: they very well may. this is a crime in france, to invade someone's privacy. if they decide to pursue this, it could result in a one-year prison term for the editor of this publication and fines up to $50,000, possibly more if they take this into a civil arena. the problem is, we're told, that a lot of these publications actually budget for this. so they stand more to gain from the publicity and the sales of the magazine than they lose in the fines. >> kelly, thank you very much. we now come to los angeles homicide detectives who have the new information on the mysterious death of natalie wood. two months ago her 1981 death certificate was changed to say she die friday drowning and other undetermined factors. cbs news 48 hours is the only news organization to see this new evidence in the case as erin
7:33am
moriarty reports, some of the evidence was collected from the boat where she spent her last hours. >> reporter: reopening their investigation into the drowning death of legendary movie star natalie wood. and it's still going strong. >> the end game is to find out what occurred. that is the end game of any investigation. >> reporter: the detectives have gone to hawaii twice where the splendour is now docked, once on a fact-finding mission captured exclusively by 48 hours. >> can you come over here for a minute? >> reporter: and once with the man who told a dramatic and damning story about the night natalie wood died, skipper dennis davern. >> i believe robert wagner was with her up until the moment she went into the water. >> reporter: detectives are scrutinizing audiotapes recorded by natalie wood biographer suzanne finstad, calls with
7:34am
women who claimed dennis davern told them disturbing details about the drowning. if true, and if admissible in court, they could be important to the investigation. >> now i'm going to play for you what lana, natalie's sister told me, about the call she got from dennis davern. >> dennis was obviously drinking, right. he was not a close friend. i don't know why he decided to call me. >> it was 1992, more than a decade after her sister's death. >> he said that it appeared to him as though rj shoved her away. she went overboard. dennis panicked and rj said leave her there. teach her a lesson. >> lana wood goes on to say that davern said he didn't think wagner meant for her to die. >> even if he did not kill her, which is what i understand him saying, it was an accident. he didn't mean for her to drown. he didn't render her aid. >> neither wood nor davern would speak to us about the tapes.
7:35am
detectives are not commenting. >> is robert wagner a suspect? >> no. >> that was almost a year ago. and authorities still have not named a suspect. in a written statement, when the case was reopened, the wagner family said they support the investigation and trust the detectives will judge the new information on the credibility of the sources. >> they don't engage in investigations for theatrics. they engage in investigations to solve mysteries. >> is dennis davern credible? if so, is there likely to be some action brought before a grand jury? >> such an interesting question. a lot of people have raised credibility questions about dennis davern because he wrote a book and they have said maybe he's out for money. but the reason we're showing and having you hear these audiotapes is that he has been pretty consiste consistent. this is what he said privately to people much closer to the event, which gives him more
7:36am
credibility. what's interesting in california -- so much time has passed. you have statute of limitations that have eliminated some charges. but there is implied malice murder. if there is enough evidence to imply that someone did something intentionally, that they knew was inherently dangerous, something like pushing her or she ended up in the water and not getting her, and then showed a conscience disregard -- i'm using legal terms, but disregard for life, that could add up to murder. but at this moment, you have one witness, one person out of four people who were on the boat. so, obviously, these detectives are looking for supporting evidence and would need that for any kind of charges to be brought. but this is extraordinary. most people thought this investigation would end the end of june or early july when the death certificate was changed. and it's ongoing. not just ongoing. there are two detectives assigned to this full time.
7:37am
so, there must be some credible, compelling and incriminating evidence. it just may not be enough to -- >> any idea what that is? >> the only thing they could be pursuing is this implied malice. there were people in boats close by. there's evidence they heard people at 11:00 -- heard a woman at 11:00 screaming for help, possibly hearing a mocking voice saying, oh, yes, we'll come get you, when the first call for help wasn't until 1:30. no one knows exactly what the evidence is. detectives are keeping this very close to the vest. it's ongoing. >> erin, great to see you. you can see her full report on "48 hours vanity fair:hollywood scandal" tomorrow night 10:00 central right here on cbs. >> last marine battalion deployed to afghanistan is starting their mission this week. we'll show you about the training many of the marines never expected to have. you're watching "cbs this morning." cbs "this

7:43am
>> hey, you better open [ bleep ]. >> i'm pretty hard on them. hard on them now so i don't have to worry about it later. >> reporter: hard on them because the men of second battalion seventh marines are being ordered to handle afghanistan's most troubled region, helmand province alone, one-third of what nato had last time. this is a vastly different strategy. how do you make that adjustment? >> a lot of it is just understanding the mission. taking a look at how we're going to get there, to make sure when we go out the door there isn't a void that's going to collapse back in. >> learning the culture and -- >> reporter: to prepare, they spent much of their time not in combat but in conversation. these mock villages are filled with 400 role players. most from afghanistan.
